It was on July 4th, 1776, that the United States of America
was born.
This is the land that upholds the freedom
and dignity of the individual,
endowed with certain inalienable rights,
guaranteed by our constitution.

And so I say....


Here are some July 4th quotes:

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all!
 By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
 John Dickinson

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Abraham Lincoln

Here's a book recommendation for this very special day:

Hardcover, 512 pages
Published by Ballantine Books
July 3rd, 2001

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Jeff Shaara dazzled readers with his bestselling novels Gods and Generals, The Last Full Measure, and Gone for Soldiers. Now the acclaimed author who illuminated the Civil War and the Mexican-American War brilliantly brings to life the American Revolution, creating a superb saga of the men
who helped to forge the destiny of a nation.
